Teaser for 2018 Nissan Leaf debuting in 2017Enlarge Photo
Sometime within the next few months, the 2018 Nissan Leaf electric car will be unveiled to the world's media.
The second generation of a pioneering plug-in vehicle that launched affordable all-electric cars on the global market.
It's been a long time coming.
The first-generation Leaf had a traditional seven-year model cycle, from 2011 through 2017, with some running updates in 2013 and a battery with 25 percent more capacity in 2016.
That contrasts to the five-year cycle for the first-generation Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid, launched within days of the Leaf, and the constant updates to software function in the Tesla Model S.
But now the promotional cycle for the new car has begun.
